"Shawn Watson, someone legitimately just called. And said to Shawn Watson is is a disappointing quarterback this year. If you're someone who scrolls around things on the Internet. There's a good chance that you've seen a mean that you've seen a graphic Of a cartoon dog. Sitting in a house. While the entire house goes up in flames and is engulfed in fire around him. The dog is sitting there. The caption says. Everything is fine. Shawn Watson is a quarterback in the NFL. Who has talent, tons of it. There's a reason he's getting $40 million a year. And based upon the decisions made by former coach and general manager Bill O'Brien, everything on fire. Everything around him is on fire. Sort of put the Sean wants in on a disappointing quarterback list, along with Carson, Wentz and You know what? I can't even say anything. Appreciate the humor. Big shot. That's a super producer stew called Jackson. I want to give you a top six list and I'm gonna do that momentarily. But speaking of disappointments, there's so much that has gone on over the past several days and the the MBA haven't had a chance to hit on everything coming off of all of the football match ups this past Sunday. But we see the movement. Looks like neither Russell Westbrook or James Harden at this moment will be traded from the Houston Rockets. But the market's cousins will, I guess, get his chance toe stay healthy and contribute on a minimum deal in Houston. We see Trey Young has certainly gotten some help. Bogdanovich. Sacramento Kings did not match his offer sheet. Frey Young got the shooters now. Delino Gallon. Ari is there and Bogdanovich raised on Rondo. It will be a disappointment this year. And this sounds crazy to say if the Atlanta Hawks don't make the playoffs. It should be pretty fun. Trey Young is an amazing basketball player. If you haven't seen him now he has some shooting help. Mantra is Harold goes from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Lakers. A lot of movement going on here. In the NBA, and so it's going to shape up to be fun. Obviously Chris Paul moving around and going up to Phoenix. But one move that I saw over the weekend. It kind of made me go. Just Whoa! What the hell is this? Michael Jordan. Greatest basketball player of all time. Someone just disagreed, and that's fine. Michael Jordan decided tow seal the deal. And make a phone call. To give Gordon Hayward Four year contract. That amounts to $120 million. To play for the Charlotte Hornets. A young team. That is gonna be growing. They gave this they gave Gordon Hayward someone who's going to be 31 years old. We had to watch his leg snap. One television. Unfortunately, At the beginning of his tenure with the Celtics, and the need has he's had to deal with injuries throughout after the case. Michael Jordan has given this man Was probably out of his prime. Is not someone who was just over athletic. He's a solid player. I want to surprise me of Gordon Hayward. If he's healthy, goes and gives anybody you know, let's say 16 to 18 points. Maybe he goes five and five and not knocks down some shots. Is that a contract that you want sucking up about 30% of your salary cap space. Is he moving the needle that much? And Charlotte? The mellow ball is there You got Graham, Rosie here Miles Washington. Gordon Hayward, four years 120. That's a contract for player that you think is going to just change your franchise. And Gordon Hayward, unfortunately, ain't it? And so I know Michael Jordan doesn't have the most sterling record when it comes down to the to the draft. Bringing in an Adam Morrison. Drafting a Kwamie Brown who just basically bully guys in high school, because he's bigger than everybody. Hey, you have Gordon Hayward. So Michael Jordan. Man, if if you want something for Christmas and see if you can get it from M. J because he's handing out a whole lot of nonsense right now. Speaking of handing out nonsense. This is The holiday season. We have moved into a space and 2020 where this year cannot get the hell up on out of here. Quick enough. So much to deal with whether it's a matter of racial tension in the country, whether it's a matter of of covert. Trying to figure out where sports are well, sports return. There's so much going on here in 2020. And so in a typical sense in a typical night Would give you my top six list on Wednesday. But tomorrow will be the start of my my holiday vacation. I will return on Monday night, so don't miss me too much while I'm gone. And so tonight. I want to give you a top six list of athletes that I am thankful for. These are just you know, there's not one particular reason. It's not because this person delivered a championship or a title. They're varying reasons why I'm thankful for each one of these athletes individually. And as I take a look at the list I'd say I've probably met half of them. So without further ado. About a day away from Thanksgiving. Here in the United States. I'm gonna give you my top six list of athletes. I'm thankful for 65432 One each time to get Jr's latest top six list only on the J R sport brief. That's right. I told you,.

"Welcome back to the winning Place podcast with Brian Rob and my dog Jena. I'm rich Levine guys. I don't even know when is the last time that the three of us were together on a on a zoom staring into each other's eyes Gordon Hayward was on the Celtics. That's that's one Walker mobile and Mike hadn't written the greatest Jaylen Brown feature on the internet. That was it was a couple times can be calm folks if you haven't checked it out yet. That's where Mike has been for much last few months. And Rich has been doing important things like being a a good father. I'm creating life creating life. So, you know barring barring importance, but it's nice to be back. I have missed you guys and I am I am very excited that we were back together for this a pretty dog. Turning point for the Celtics but definitely a pretty big weekend for the Celtics when it comes to NBA free agency. I think turning point is fair turning point to what I guess is the question, but I'm certainly a a moment that that there is before and after Gordon Hayward. Yes a sizable subtraction for this team. You know, what what what were your initial thoughts and on what happened? One of my first thoughts honestly was trying to summarize the Gordon Hayward era and like you just said it was like a break point before and after rich. I I mean like I don't know it was so bizarre so quick so like anticlimactic off like I respect Gordon's game. I'm a fan of it in a lot of ways. He helped the Celtics when he was healthy, but so wildly disappointing and I I wasn't I mean when you sign a guide to a Max contract he misses the first season and then just straight-up is not even close to as athletic or aggressive as he was in the previous season was an All-Star in Utah, like just wildly let-down I guess and I personally, you know, I I was stunned that the Charlotte Hornets were willing to pay him a hundred. $20 over 40 years and I do not blame the Celtics for not matching that I think that would have been a big mistake, but I don't know..

Fresh update on "charlotte hornets" discussed on The Bill Simmons Podcast
"But they gained christian would they signed boogie. Which interesting fire future. I like so my question as i'm thinking about them long-term is do we overreact to westbrook in the bubble. Because we've seen this now football to where these guys get co bid and how some of them don't come back totally right. He definitely wasn't right then he got hurt. Yeah in trying to think of what. Westbrook look like in january february march. I actually would trade for him. If i was the wiz and i. Let's say i had to give up my number one pick and it was top five protected next year. It's like all right. Well i'm going take offs or top ten protect whatever. I'm gonna make the playoffs if i make the deal. Yeah but then but then this leads to charlotte which is our other. What the hell are they doing team. Were sure that could have just traded for westbrook and probably sent nick attune back and taken on money and instead they spent one hundred twenty million on gordon hayward and i know whatever but given hayward's injury history and the fact that you know he's hitting a different stage of his career agewise. Seems so much riskier to me than just trading for westbrook. I didn't get that well. I mean they overpaid for gordon hayward but as we've already discussed if you're the charlotte hornets and you want somebody you have to overpay for now. They took that to a new level. Allegri is the four years. My guess is that the only way gordon was going there if you gave him the fourth year. Otherwise he would've taken maybe less money in their sign and trade with indiana right. Yeah that makes some sense mark bartlestein by the way. He's just one of the best in the business to get gordon that contract yet. It's unbelievable. It is unbelievable as he played chicken with danny ainge and i think age kept waiting for bartlestein. The just steer away. And and barton's i know i'm going straight at you. Better listen to me. i'm gonna take him but the celtics thought. It was the knicks. They didn't realize it was the hornets. Well they. I don't know that they should know that. I will say this with with the injury history. And and i might be a fool for saying this but i still. I think the injuries gordon hayward had had been freakish injuries. You know it's not like someone with the bad kyrie's head how many surgeries on his knees. It's not like that. It's like there's right. There's no worth freaky injury than the first one right and then i think your body isn't quite right because i don't think that ankle maybe we'll ever be quite a hundred percent right and then you have all just like you break these bo- i mean. They were freak injury so he got boston. Had these series of freak. Things happened to him. He was a very durbale player. Yeah and i think you know i do. I know as a matter of fact that charlotte of course has some concerns about his durability but they need leadership they need someone that can you know. Lamelo make lamelo ball. There's hope there. And that there's a chance so overpaying for gordon hayward maybe you're appeasing lamelo ball and hoping that he wants to build with you there and gordon hayward i still think i still believe whoops gonna kill my little thing here. I still believe gordon hayward can be a twenty point game score. I believe that i really do so. The case for the signing is to seven games. He played last season before he broke it. Yeah thirty nine at against chicago. Yeah and you twenty game. He was starting to attack the basket again and it was like oh well was a two year injury. Then he gets hurt twist right and he was their best facilitator last year. I mean and that's the part. That's what the celtics will miss. It's it's not going to show up. He you know. He had a lot of hockey assists. He made the past that made the great pass that made other guy make the ez pass for the for the or the score and the other guy gets the assist. I mean you know. Say what you want about gordon hayward i'm not exactly sure why he wants to end up in charlotte but that's his business I do think it was hard for him to accept the role that he accepted last year. Less yachts everything had it was very difficult for him. I think it was difficult for his family. I just say. And and i think he just thought i wanna spread my wings. I think i can still be an all star. All that's fine. I will say this about him. Did you hear him complain. Did you ever read about him. Complaining let you know he never. He never did and And there was always this weird dynamic right from the beginning when jalen brown nine even this year pass your started. His assent and it became apparent. Like okay maybe. Jaylen brown's the number. Three not gordon hayward i think there was always friction between their camps. You know people that were in their camps. But i never saw friction between them as teammates and i think that's a credit to both of them honestly. I think the one thing that really got lost with him was his defense. Just dropped yeah. I don't think it was ever the same with his ankle. And i really. I know he was hurt. In the bubble azure but he was supposed to come in at least be an upgrade over the crappy swingman they got and i don't know i shouldn't have play and you shouldn't have been playing onset plan. Yeah but once you play you have to be prepared for. Take the criticism if you go up there once you put the uniform on you go out there. You're fair game to you know anybody that wants to take you on. It was time for him to go. I don't blame him for leaving. I still think we're going to look back at this. Three years. the celtics and just be like. Wow you think like they signed horford hayward the the kyri trade in basically a fourteen months span plus they have these incredible brown tatum. Assets and marcus smart. They're on rookie. Contracts right and you just think like it's kind of impossible. They didn't make the finals. But but think about this. You just named the three guys. Kyri horford hayward did they. What did they get for him. They all want bill. That is not a good sign..

NBA Mock Draft 3.0
"And we are back talking two thousand twenty mock draft three point o our last mock draft of the year. It's draft day draft morning. What better to unwrap and a mock draft on draft morning. it's the second round. Now now's the time to confess. I'm really terrible at projecting second rounds like you know my hit rate and some drafts has been like one two three picks in the second round. It's it's so hard to keep track of the first round the wheels to sort of come off and these picks happened like every two minutes. I it's hard to really keep track. I did my best. I project where. I think particular players can go. You definitely don't really get deep into this when you're talking the nba scouts in executives about what they're going to do in the second round. They're still trying to figure out the first round as well. So i've tried to find some fits there so this is reported more chad ford speculation. Here about what's happening. The second round starts with the dallas mavericks this pick via the warriors taking malachi. Flynn the san diego state. Junior point guard One of the guys that frankly could go ten spots higher in the draft. I actually really love malachi flynn. There's kind of a lot of point guards kind of later in the first round which may push him out a little bit. But i actually think he's the guy who could step in play right away. I would actually love him in dallas. I think that'd be great. Pick for dallas at thirty one at thirty two. The charlotte hornets are on the board. They're getting this pick via the cavs. Paul read the sophomore forward center out of depaul. Have them going thirty two. This is john. Hollinger's been super high on all year. I think he's another guy who can guard positions on the floor. I really like him. Actually think he brings some stuff offensively as well. I personally like him. Better than precious. I'm right now. Could turn out to be a terrible take. But it's kind of what i think and i definitely think he could be an excellent fit. I'm in charlotte. Especially if they end up with lamelo ball and they're gonna need to add a defensive big man. As part of that package at thirty-three the minnesota timberwolves around the board. This'll be the third pick because they have to. First round picks. Tillman the junior power forward at michigan state. Everybody loves this kid. He's he's one of these guys like high floor. Low ceiling. just does his work every day. Great rebound or plays hard. I'm ken defend going. Bring be a great locker room guy is gonna find some rotation that somewhere I like him in minnesota on a team. That is trying to go forward. I think he actually adds a bit of a veteran presence to the locker room. At thirty four the philadelphia seventy sixers are on the clock. That get this. Pick via the hawks. Isaiah joe the arkansas shooting guard who is one of the best shooters in this draft. Crazy range. High volume of three point shots philadelphia. Always in need shooters. When you're going to be playing. Ben simmons on this team he certainly constructs the floor. And i'd like isaiah joe there them at thirty five the sacramento kings Via the pistons. Dan dotson to kansas sophomore guard. Who is one of the quickest players in the draft. He's an elite score excels off the getting to the basket not a great shooter a bit undersized for his position not really a point guard that's why he slides a few spots higher but could be instant offense off the bench for sacrimento at thirty five at thirty six the philadelphia seventy sixers back on the clock this time via that pick from the mix jordan aura the louisville junior who also is one of the better shooters in this draft. He has good size vers position. Good length i'm not sure exactly what else he brings to the table besides shooting but again i'm just loading philly up i with shooters at the moment at thirty seven. The washington wizards are on the board. They get this pick via the chicago. Bulls tyler bay the junior ford out of colorado who is one of the best athletes in the strath super explosive. Really hard worker on the defensive end still just kinda coming along on the offensive. And then i think that's been a concern. He's he's one of those guys that might be a little bit of a twitter. Not sure exactly what position he plays in the pros that causes him to slide. A few picks in this draft think this is still really value. and by the way when. We're talking about a lot of these guys dotson. Tillman for example malachi flan. These guys could all end up in the first round as well. Just have them the second thirty eight new york knicks via the hornets janis ramsey. The texas tech freshman guard again volume score can shoot it a little bit We're just loading the knicks up now with backward guys that can score the basketball. I'm not sure who's going to defend in new york. But he's an intriguing prospect. He's only nineteen years old. And i certainly there's upside there with the thirtieth pick in the draft at thirty nine the new orleans. Pelicans selecting this pick for the wizards. Daniela touro the minnesota sophomore center. Who had a really really strong summer season one of the more improved players in the country very skilled at big man. I'm great size. Adding just bore skill in size to this pelicans roster i'm at the moment If you remember earlier jalen smith. I'm selected at thirteen at forty. The grizzlies are on the board. This pick via the silence. This is the first pick that the grizzlies have been able to make in the twenty twenty. Nba draft a doco as a bouquet. The kansas center. Big guy seven. Seven wingspan seven footer. Really good athlete actually just dominant player in the pain. Terrible free throw. Shooter doesn't really do anything facing the basket. But when you have that size and length and athleticism. I think you get something done in. The and kind of reminds me deondraye jordan. A little bit and a little bit surprised. He doesn't go higher. I get there seems to be a penalty on the big minner plane or pain. Right now in the draft at forty one san antonio spurs back on the on the board yama dr the israeli guard nineteen year old for hop. Well tel-aviv and you know. He's such an intriguing prospect because he plays his butt off. His incredible energy is just making a difference when he's out there but he's not really a point guard. He's kind of more of a two guard in a point guards body. He's not like a great shooter. I'm athletically he's actually not bad at all but that lack of a jump shot kinda undersized i position that makes him more of a second round prospect at he absolutely wants to leave israel and come to the nba. And if it's the g. league next year and so he could be an interesting prospect for san antonio developed down the road
"charlotte hornets" Discussed on Premium Hoops
"So many times in his manages right behind him and he's like two seconds behind and like on a pause button but Yeah you're right about the most shabby did experiment with him like on that high low action trying to get mismatches in the post on guards and you know I wasn't a high volume but he was successful down there and got up connecting PJ Sir Miles of we're just talking about their. A lot of people were not happen with the PJ because they thought it was redundant with miles which tour certain extent. I feel like they do overlap a little bit I i. kind of you Reggie is more like a three three and a half riding wherever you PJ more of like a four four and a half. So there is some overlap there and I don't know if will ever be able to coexist for long but. Miles has got away to go. He just had some spurts, ups and downs but his struggles on the ball like you said, his his handles just to lose just journalists. Yeah because that's kind of where I'm at with him I, think there's enough there were if if he really locks in and folks is on, he can become a good defender to a to a very good defender because he has he has its tools to do it for sure but I think the biggest thing like you mentioned with his hand on me he he he didn't lead the big ten in turnovers when he was at Michigan State Manny turn the ball over a lot So I know that's something that I've been waiting for your new provider I think there have been like maybe small strides but nothing like super tangible and the ability for him to be a three long-term is based on. If he can become you know otherwise he's going to end up being more of just a stretch for guy who can do some other things because if you can't run pick and roll occasionally do a little bit more on bald than than you're destined to become a four so. Yeah I. Agree I think there are some redundancies but I'm hopeful that they can work out 'cause I I liked the idea of them together. But Nick did you have anything miles? well, I'm glad you're actually just mentioned that there at the I think small ball four is his ideal spot like you said his off all defenses awful and I think you can hide that a little bit better putting him fours and he's a super strong guy who can really. Put Him on ball. A hides it a little better, and he could bang bodies down low with his sharp frame and I. think that's a lot to do y successful on both ups on ball. He has next to no game like we said. So, teams usually cal either throw their shitty defensive guy him or just their lanky, not great defender at the wing position better defenders are usually for Rosiere in Graham. So I think that's a big part of it, but you know I just I. I thinks wobble for would be great for him. off the bench can't use them as space they're using like you said, Richie in the high low area game post ups if teams want to keep trying to. Hide their worst defenders on it may be who is in the role I mean his athleticism is through the roof like this guy can jump on top of the backboard like you know throw you throw him in the pick and rolls. If you can take advantage of you know and I I think there's a little bit to work with here is two years in you know like you said, he hasn't really improved much. He hasn't really not improved much. That's. But yeah. That's where I met with him. I, think kind of going off that as well. you know in in looking at having the number three pick in the draft this year there are a lot of options in terms of wing players are probably I think from listening to you guys in terms of looking at mocks A lot of stuff is going to probably trend towards more of a lead ball handler primary initiator, someone like that But I'm wondering kind of what you're thinking in terms of where you'd like the Hornets ago with this draft and. How that might impact wrestling roster. Yeah I mean Hornets ever never get lucky a lot. When we got the overall pick So I'm not a big draft. Give you listen to podcasts does be Brian and Spencer drafts kind of heads they do a lot of research on the at mine name kind of top priority opening. Obviously, you know when you talk about the big three when it comes to the draft, a lot of people like to mention the mellow wiseman and Edwards and horns just take whoever's left south might not be a decision to make and his lovers left but my and I'm not a big wisn ban by the way but I'm hoping that Edwards is there at three I I can see them going number one overall I can also see him dropping the mocks. Up there where he has dropped, I like him and I feel like he fits the mold and the position of need in the wings style you can play out of the ISOS got tons about lettuces them on the defensive side of the ball he just locks in if he locks in, he's going to be a great interest attacked defender I. Think a lot of people question you know is mentality is lead dog mentality, but I think he's very coach -able and I could see him in James Laura go being a perfect fit together. Very athletic guy that's the guy that I'm hoping slips to number three. Now there's another player that we mentioned a lot our podcast that I know. Most people don't think she number three and and to be honest, he won't go number three. So I'm not getting my hopes up the Hornets GonNA draft and but Killian as we mentioned a lot about him but I I, it's probably destined more for like that five nine rain. She's very proud employer not explosive by any means it can play on the ball he can play off the ball in. If you're thinking about kind of leading ear go down the road, he would pair perfect devante or Gillian can just gotTa takeover and BNB the League point. Guard. So my I hope is is Edwards on is the on Lamelo I just because he's a ball, you know what I mean. As as my eyes sleeper that I feel like should be. Qualified to be the third overall pick but I know that most people are going to do that as an overdraft. Yeah. Yeah. Shared of the the European at you there you're the franchise it's really high European players or you just completely try to them. That's what it seems. Yeah I think there's some of that too and I I mean I think you know kind of conversely going off at as well. I. Mean You look at a guy like he's a another guy's not go number three let somebody who would be tremendous for Charlotte Yucca Kanu I mean this team needs a long-term five or at least somebody who you can count on to. Take minutes away from some of the guys who are playing the five now and not not to besmirch them but it's I mean it was that was probably the weirdest part of Charlotte used to me. When James Started platooning guys. So he would literally like I mean you can speak on as well. But a guy would sit one night and then you would rotate either sodas between Cody Zeller and Biz Mac Mambo and William Hernan Gomez one of them would sit and then to play that night and then it would rotate and that was like when I saw that report in started, noticing it in watching playout. I understood it because that's how the rotation worked out where the same time man it was weird. It was just like really weird because I'd never seen anything like that before. Yeah, it's one of those things where you want consistency ad rotation, but we have players that are not producing consistently and it kind of goes hand in here, their refrigerators try to find something nets working at the center position. So yes, a center center is definitely a position of need I. think that's why a lot of words fans want Wiseman I would honestly sabre on Yoga on Congress like you mentioned. It those players are almost not polar opposites, but you have Wisenberg physically gifted and then you have on your Congress works very hard on the offense of rebounds on the defensive rebound setting picks. He's a good pick and roll player good defensive player The only thing on you know needs to work on is maybe passing out of the Dick Enroll so. Wiseman has like this like this mythical upside that people like I just don't know if I can buy into in a problem is there's not a lot of kate on him because he only involve games in Memphis. So yes, deposition of need with Cody Zeller really being the only player on this roster that's not a free agent moving into next season I think we'll probably try to bring back earning them as.

"Still have a fourteen percent chance of getting. Into, what do they have with a nine percent chance tonight? So they had ninety one percent. Let's look the other way ninety one percent chance not to get the number one pick. So that's a better way to look at it and to be quite honest the what they really need is to stop caring when they lose because as long as James Dolan who has not just the New, York, Knicks, but all you know there's All these other things he has other business and other income as long as the income is steady. A massive drop off he. What does it matter if we get eight? That's what if we get the eighth pick that we keep on rolling we every everything just keeps going. So what they need to do Mark Titus is the the apathy needs to to speak so many volumes that it it reverberates all the way through. So James Dolan can hear that is any my care but until that point, he doesn't care but I think that. Misery Loves Company and the Knicks that they have they loved to wait in the misery together. In fact, the Knicks became good I would be pressed to find many knicks fans that would know the starting five if tirees Haliburton was the best player in the Knicks I, don't think that they would be gung Ho and talking about tires Halliburton but I could be wrong I hope that we have a chance to see something like that where they mixed comparison I'm putting it out there tires Halliburton to the knicks seems like a good fit he's one of the best players in the draft you need a point guard take him. Here's a comparison. The Knicks are Indiana. The Knicks are I. Accept like. The Knicks fans both at the state is true. Instead of like we deserve this. Why do you deserve it? You're like because I said so and we? Met Yeah, yeah we are. We are basketball can't exist close your eyes and picture basketball without us. You're like, all right done. What's the Big Jonathan Cooper? The Knicks are you it's like, yeah. Well, yeah. Anyway. That's becoming frustrating every year you know what's great is that I called the Knicks Kentucky and then. You kidding me every year the lottery happens the Knicks fans pretend like they were screwed because they had like three percent chance to get the number one picking it didn't happen and that's proof that God hates the Knicks and nothing good will ever happen the next. Meanwhile, the Hornets have to remind people even exists. Thank you got the Goddamn Pacers getting a four seat at every playoffs remind tire life losing the first or second round and every. So often, Paul George comes along a Reggie Miller comes along and you lose to one of the goats in the conference finals and that's like Whoa. We did it took. Like we got there we got the mountaintop we didn't look around for God's Sakes. The really are like five basketball franchises that are like I love my franchise and it's been a lot of fun being a fan of this team. The rest. Yes absolutely sucks wide. Why does God hate us is what everyone says, but the Knicks fans pretend they're the only ones I learned a lot tonight about the NBA Pendulum and this brings up a great point what you're talking about like who's in who's out and what I learned as we did our ESPN pan around and we got to Brad dirty looks like no one alerted him that he was on camera yet love Brad daugherty number one pick one of the greatest nascar analysts you ever find and basketball players they show him Cleveland is out the pendulum has swung back the other way Lebron James Brought Cleveland back. He kicked Charlotte to the curb for a whole decade he was like Charlotte can exist and. Thrive can only be one small market that can do well in a place like Ohio Place North Carolina place like Louisiana you can only pick one or the other Charlotte is now in Charlotte is in the top four Cleveland sitting on the outside at five. Get Him. OUTTA, here, Charlotte takes their spot. The goat is back give him his crown that was the best part of the night. I was like Chicago's back in Charlotte's backing. Golden. State we know they're Minnesota. They're trying to make something happen with that two thousand, fifteen draft there. They keep trying to make Devon Booker and Karl Anthony. Towns, Indiana Russell worker happen or whatever they're trying to make fetch happen I'm just going to happen But they are in you know and that war that four is in and I saw Brad daugherty is is huge just like man I think we're out and. We're. CLEVELAND. I just I pour one out for Cleveland everytime. I think about Cleveland. They've just gone through. Can you imagine if core years ago they were in the finals and they warn Mark Titus if the cavs win the title Twenty Sixteen which they were what twenty seconds away from now invention away. Yeah got. You know how close they were down. Oh my God. How do you might as well fold the franchise with what happened did you have Lebron leave twice to not WanNa tell you though to now like what to to hire A sixties to be the new head of your franchise and lead you into the next phase, the Post Lebron world, and then he's like fired or resigned. He's like I can't take a half sees that he's like all right about Oh my God. Yeah it would. It would it would be a disaster but now everyone can point to it'd be like well, you won the title in two thousand, sixteen stop complaining exactly exactly and that's that's the curse like that is going to end up being one of the most curse titles of all time I feel like if the world exists in only one thirty we're going to look like, can you believe in two thousand sixteen, the CAVS won the title. Really. Really is. A one final note on the lottery they need a new process they need I don't like the envelopes I. Don't I I, love the h. l. where the ball you do a live. We'll do it live. Let's do life. Rigged, Mark. That's what I'm saying we need some trick. The pendulum has swung. The POWERS THAT BE HAVE SPOKEN CHARLOTTE IS IN CLEVELAND IS OUT I. Don't I don't understand the argument for not doing it live other like if you're not rigging it, you have to do it live right Right like what I don't I don't get it. Is it? Is it like an article that Cleveland Calling Cleveland pleading the fifth? That can't say anything I think it's an urge erste young Dang like they ernst and young demands that they get a guy there who puts gloves on and gets to carry the envelopes from the back room to the podium, and they pay like five million dollars for the right to do that and I think that's really what it is. I mean on I. Think you're right there would be some some better TV because like I don't WanNa see Mark Martinez, you seem like a nice enough guy whatever our tatum seems like you and I like mix together in people's heads. Morte to be honest he seems a little too happy to be. There is a dial a bet he really does like a guy that's like off the street and they threw a suit. He's like Oh my God I'm doing the lottery is like all right number fourteen, the Boston Celtics. Mardi back a little bit dude you can't be that. When he chose like Sacramento for example, it's like they cut the deer and Fox and he's obviously not happy. Pray Weaver with the Pistons he's not excited he's like that. Sucks. Why I want to see a five star recruit dude this way wouldn't that be awesome like the recruits have tapped into every other way to. Get A guy with to come out with envelopes and have a podium hire more tatum have Martinez, doing. And the number five school and the Josh Anderson Sweepstakes Marquette. Sorry you're not going to. Come to. Joe. Turned officer during his campaign..

"Our favorite fans for Farley Kentucky fans are listen your favorite fans. They. Fans and They're not. They came in our next of course and they're and they're saying we're upset who was Kentucky you cowards can't even find a team and the reason is because the Charlotte Hornets thanks to Brian is for this note since they've had first round picks They have made seven first round picks from the Kentucky wildcats and I'd say it again, seven players that were first round pick for the Charlotte. Hornets played at Kentucky in the history of time. So PJ Washington Rex Chapman Chazan yes. In one, thousand, nine, hundred. That's all know who who they believe. Monk Me Monk I. Mean The list goes Michael. Kidd Gilchrist. It's seven guys I. Mean we give report. And guess what none of it helps none of it worked. And that's where we are where I could say, Hey, if you really want me to pick a team because first of all Kentucky, your whole point is we don't we don't do professional basketball. You know we're college basketball like that's the way they to knock. North Carolina, and stuff. So I thought you WANNA play this game. But if you WANNA play this game, you have so many. Kentucky First Round picks that are in Charlotte your answer baby, the Charlotte Hornets but that's not an answer you want to hear. But the real answer upon review RN is New York Nicks New New York Knicks. Do New York narrow that again worldwide west goes there Leon rose goes there. We got basically a campaign to get Calipari to be in some sort of GM executive role. At some point he's going to be a coach anymore i. think he's going to step up above that. And be somewhere else with nick but the Nixon General WanNa, make a move. They feel like they have the eighth pick every single year and yet somehow have not been able to make Kevin Knox and some of these other guys work out this is the year they make the trade for Kilian Hayes or Or. Devon vassal or something like that where they jump up and bake a big swing and I. Don't know the negative fishes either Kentucky. Dude I think I think the CAL thing makes sense like I I know it's a medium at this point it's the it's on par with like Brad. Stevens. Die You and all that talking about cal take an MBA job but. The to be his his exit strategy when he leaves Kentucky not to coach like you said but like if I'm the Knicks I, back a dump truck up to John, Calipari and I say. All right. You'RE YOU WANNA get out of coaching you're done coach. All we want you to do is just like attach your name to our franchise and by doing an show up at the recruiting men to recruit agents. Yeah. Recruits, we want you to do. That's it. Just like once a summer we want you to go to the Hamptons and. Wine and Dine Karl Anthony Towns in Anthony Davis and the rest of 'em. Darren Fox. All of his guys, all the other Kentucky players that we ought not. Yeah I didn't pick a Kentucky comparison because I think, Kentucky's incomparable Kentucky is the gold standard of. Not Just College basketball. Basketball's home. I. Just felt like it was fair I. Think if I got it more I'd say the nineties bowls probably. Yeah. There's only one. There's only one Kentucky that's what it is. That's that's why I didn't pick a doug. The Knicks. So here's my thought on this I. I saw far too many nick reactions. I saw far too many headlines already there were like. Man those the knicks unlucky yet again for the in the draft and all man Whoa is me and it sucks being addicts fan were. This is the worst and I just. I don't know I want the Knicks to be good because I want this was me bullshit the stop like in one of the most annoying things knicks fans pretending like they're the most. Downtrodden. Sports fans on earth when no you're. You're you're not even close to the worst in this country not even worse than the NBA. Pretending legs just the entitlement, The New York entitlement of new. York should be the best at everything but then I don't want them to be good because they don't deserve it i. don't I don't want Knicks fans. Happy all the fans of bitch all the time. I. Get a James Dolan Sucks. Your franchises should be you're looking at your like we are New York we the the Mecca of basketball it's all it all lines except James Dolan won't get out of the way I get frustrated but like I don't know seventy five percent of the owners in professional sports more than that. Ninety percent of owners and professional sports are the exact same way the worst in the in. An, actively like get in the way of of winning and Piss off their fan base that's part of being a fan of franchise. Not I'm just I I like already the reaction like the Knicks were entitled to get the Number One pick the same thing last year resign you saw like the photo shops of Zion and a New Jersey it's like tonight's the night we're going to get what makes you think that that you're GonNa win like even if you had the number one chance, you still have a fourteen percent chance of getting. Into, what do they have with a nine percent chance tonight? So they had ninety one percent. Let's look the other way ninety one percent chance not to get the number one pick..

"Third Pick to the Hornets he has he has a wide range there, and then the the Ob top who we both love here as dating basketball fans you see him sometimes flared up to even as high as the number two pick and even as low as the seventeenth big. There's such a range of who you actually value and then I think a lot of the GM's are playing the the guessing game I guess because people any our head wait and see. But you're going to see me when I turn it away. Yeah. Wait till I don't you twenty eight percent well, he's GonNa talk yourself into a lot of guys when there's not a a premier guy that you know isn't Anthony Davis town. There's a lot of fringe guys like the kid from USC The power forward I. Can't remember his name but he I've seen him up as high as number two on a lot of people's lists. Kuro WHO's at Auburn? Is another guy that's a top five pick for some people you know and that's I find it fascinating. But lamelo ball is really the talk. He's the only one I think that gets the people going whether you know it's it's provocative right? lamelo ball is provocative that people either upset on one side of the equation or they're looking at you like how could you not pass up the singular town? Who is you know Anthony Davis or whatever there's some people that believe that he is yeah. I think Lamelo Ball has the highest ceiling. Which got I. I'm so excited original draft time already say. Lowest floors and I do they lamelo could could be like I don't know but I I don't know if the timber wolves. But Basque we don't worry about this. Anymore I was gonNA say like, does he play? What would he play well with the Ngelo Russell I don't see that working Lamelo ball and Diangelo Russel whereas Anthony Edwards like I. Think I think if you're drafting for fit Anthony, Edwards is the guy. But Man I i. think it's GonNa end up being Lamelo I like I think the hype is GonNa get out of control like the lake people are just GonNa talk themselves into and he's got the he's got the the you Ma- maybe maybe there's just stick where you and I complain about guys a player overseas but he's got that that factor of like playing in Australia people are going to pretend like you're watching this what season we're in we're in the the pretend like you're watching I have I. Have scouted that game. Yes. Pretend like I have a synergy account I've been breaking down the tape on all these guys and all that kind of stuff. That's why I feel like the buzz around the Melo is going to grow because it's so much Lamelo I if you're if you're a talking head talking about the draft and you come out with like facts and figures about Lamelo Ball, it's a way to flex and be like I'm smarter than all of you because I broke down his team when he was playing. These games and you know and if you're like I, like Anthony Edwards. No one cares no one really cares about that. No. One's trying to hear that. Lamelo Ball. I don't know I think I think he's GonNA end up being. Normal, I think I think I just talked myself into that even though I wouldn't do that if I was I would do Anthony Edwards that's what I'm saying. But like but but at the end of the day that to me feels like a Joe Borough number-one pick where you know or Baker Mayfield number-one pick where you kinda go with your gut, it's not the mere talent. But if you are the Minnesota Timberwolves, you say, we want this guy in the building we want him to be on our team and we'll figure out the pieces from there. But when you have the number one pick and you put the pressure like what we saw Markelle folds man when you're the number one pick and then everyone. Is All eyes on you you're Anthony Edwards, you twenty eight percent when you're going Shabina and now you're getting guarded by Klay. Thompson and all these other two guards that are destroying to go at you and that that's a different environment like I feel for Minnesota. In fact, the most interesting part of the draft was the final four when they cut down the final four and it's like Chicago is there, which is like the bull seeing that everyone wants to be good again because the NBA Chicago Market. We Love Chicago here on this program that let us do a live show there in Chicago Zanies. It was good to see them and they will get devante Graham the most improved player sitting there with all the good luck in the world has has like you said, made history got them into the top three out of nowhere they the six percent chance for pick at that point you got steph curry with corn rose trying to pay homage to Alan Iverson, and also he would rather have been anywhere else in the world that. Have when they showed the Larry O'Brien trophies I'm like I think Steph one of those to be with him but I'm glad that you guys still did that and then we cut them down and get the final two staffers, his own, his old teammate, Diangelo Russel, and the other day it looks like versus the franchise that passed up on him twice. Yeah. The franchise that drafted every other guard in his draft. They're like we won't tell us. We Will Johnny Will Ricky Rubio we won't Wayne Ellington overstepping period they they wanted to three point specialist Millington over three point specialists, right so this is he's sitting there with that. They're also playing bubble like bubble basketball, these not a part of and then I think the. Best Case for the warriors like you said, they get the Steph gets the bow out says, say his goodbyes and then Golden State Warriors get the best seat in the house, which is we can trade back and we want to but we also have Minnesota to decide who the best player the draft is and then we get the best player I mean yeah. Well everyone's saying. By, everyone I mean, like the four people I saw said the Weizmann to the warriors, the warriors the warriors have already kind of come out and said, we were interested trade into pick because the warriors unlike a lot of these teams at the top of the draft board. The warriors are pretty good on their franchise that knows what they're doing their franchises in win. Now Mode, they are not in the lottery because they suck is a franchise, the because guys were hurt. So it stands to reason that the words you're GonNa be pretty good next year they don't need to rebuild around a Lamelo Ball Ernie Anthony Edwards. So they would take the guy that like is the best fit which is probably James Wiseman, which is interesting because James Wiseman on most people's big boards James Wiseman is not like. The, the some people have them in the number one discussion, but.

Maybe a little bit of Tom Brady in Tampa Bay which is might be the weirdest part of the whole thing and then I'm seeing a guy in the rain running into a stop sign and I'm seeing a kid getting smacked in the face by an elephant and I'm seeing another kid given out free. Hugs at nursing homes and That's that's what I'm looking for. Where are you seeing this? I'm seeing that from the most unlikely source. I think maybe ever which is At Rex Chapman Ryen. Which do I notice rex? Chapman popping up on your timeline. It was probably a year ago in the spring of Twenty nineteen and I started to get the texts from friends who were saying. Have you seen this video? And have you seen that video? And have you seen? Who is posting these videos? I'm part of this generation where I remember. Rex Chapman as Mr Kentucky basketball. I mean this must be the greatest high school basketball player that ever lived and then he's the first draft pick of the Charlotte Hornets and then he's in he's the white dude in the dunk contest. And then he's hanging thirty nine on Jordan. What he's with the Miami Heat he's Rexon. He's King Rex. He's sexy rexy and I'm like there's no way this is the same rex. Chapman has to be this other. Shabina out there. That just happens to be some borrow twitter superstar and it turns out they are the exact same person I think. A lot of people seeing XS tweets for the first time had a similar reaction but I also find it very funny that some people may be in their twenties and younger might not even know who rex. Chapman is or they just think. Oh yeah the guy on twitter. You does the videos so Ryan. Let's educate them and refresh people's memories. Take us back to Kentucky late. Nineteen Eighty S. What was rex? Mania Steel Diaper Dandy. That's going to be one of the all time legend the perspective. I'll give you that. I was a north Carolinian living all tobacco road and REX. Chapman was the guy that you made. Sure you got back to your television by eleven o'clock to see sportscenter just to see what he had done he just was. It was electrified. He was so smooth he was dribble behind his back. He was dishing the ball he was Dunkin. He was doing everything that require. Frankly white dude's weren't doing in college basketball that time and this is before the Internet before you could go on Youtube and post. Your own highlight video. People had heard about him but they hadn't seen him so any chance. You had to watch this kid from Kentucky. Play Ball you did it. He was foul before viral was thing. You've been under incredible pressure. And yet you just go on with life every day even though you're probably the biggest folk hero. I guess it's Cogan. Robert Disagree with that. I don't know I just take day by day. So rex was this huge star. And as you mentioned being Kentucky there was a massive spotlight on him. How did he handle that? He handled it by Kinda circle in his own wagons for me. I just wanted to play basketball. And that's it the playing part at Kentucky no problem I loved it. I was good at it. Could handle it no worries it was off court stuff. That really weighed on me. He didn't go to the cafeteria He tried to go to bars with his teammates and he was met at the door by the balancer. Who wrecks man? I'd love Login here. But everyone knows you are if I let you in here. The police will be here in four minutes. It just was it was it was a lonely existence surrounded by people all the time but alone every moment every minute that I wasn't in class or at practise either hsun by myself or sleeping and I was I think I was rationalizing as I'm getting my rest but I was depressed than just in you know back then. You didn't talk about that stuff. He believed that eighteen nineteen years old. He was just getting his rest. But the reality was He was dealing with depression by just going to sleep St cope with it. He started playing horses. He did what everyone in Kentucky does and He started playing the horses. A pretty young age and That was another time and place where he could feel normal. You know he could go to the horse track and he could put his face. You know in that race inform and everybody else's word about their race informs and they won't bother him so after his sophomore off more year REX declares for the NBA draft and he ends up with the brand new expansion Charlotte Hornets for the eighth in the draft and their first in the NBA.

This is bad basketball team. This is a team best player was Keller trip Yuka but they set an NBA record for attendance and they sold out every single game for years. It was Muggsy bogues and Dell Curry and REX. Chapman was the Young Guy. He was the face of the franchise. You the best player on the team he was in the NBA dunk contest. Meena I mean and going behind his back I mean he was he was a sensation his NBA career go. He never played an all star game.

Michael Jordan and it wasn't just Michael Jordan. It was the ninety six bowls you know the unbeatable 's you in Phoenix. He became you know as the six man.

He did not have the capability to do that anymore. I I knew I was going to retire at the end of this this twelve year. I just wasn't very good. I was spending more time in the training room than I was. Playing wasn't fun at that point and I I had an emergency appendectomy right near the end of the season. I got back home and a doctor gave me a prescription for Oxycontin They gave me that Oxycontin. And I'm I'm telling you within two days I was in love like `I greatest thing I've ever had in my life

"Flurry of trades in the NBA a blockbuster in baseball mortar common colds to memorialize Kobe Bryant and highly visible way joined by ESPN's Howard Bryant good morning hours good morning Scott how are you I'm fine thanks is awesome aggressive deals in the NBA trade at the trade deadline who do you rack up as the winners and losers well and I'm not sure about the winners and losers of the trade deadline but certainly the winners and losers right now of the first half of the season you've got a look at the Lakers in the west and and the Milwaukee Bucks I think they are head and shoulders above everybody else how could you hold on for a moment our you know head yes government for you almost got me for a second there's got yeah Milwaukee is terrific and and they're great they're holding on the crushed Philadelphia the other night I thought coming into the season it was gonna be Philadelphia Milwaukee Los Angeles and Los Angeles Lakers and the clippers but I'm not too sure about the other two yet but we've got a long way to go I think trade deadline wise I think Miami Heat got much much better they got on great good dollar they made a very good deal with Memphis I think that Philadelphia tried to shore up of making a deal with with the warriors and de Angelo Russell going to Minnesota who knows what that's gonna do maybe there's a late run there but the bottom line is coming forward right now I still think that you've got two teams in this league disappointed the Boston Celtics didn't do anything but I think it's the box and the Lakers right now an official memorial for Kobe Bryant's been set for February twenty fourth they've been calls to make his image a permanent part of the game you even rent a Poland that did I did I read a little Twitter poll this morning which was soundly rejected to replace Kobe Bryant is Jerry west to is the logo of the NBA with cut him a cell away from the silhouette of your request yes absolutely and it would have been fitting in some ways because Jerry west was the the man behind making sure Kobe Bryant ended up with the Lakers making that draft day trade with the Charlotte Hornets and I I understand add on one on one level the need or they want to want to memorialize Kobe I also understand that the NBA has been around since nineteen forty seven and maybe it's time to create a new logo Jerry west has been there fifty years since nineteen sixty nine however I do think that if you're going to think about and I'm a new logo or and a modern logo it's probably got to be Michael Jordan right or but I got an arm and a leg yeah but I also understand the desire right now for people to feel that something should be done for Kobe Bryant after after all that happened Boston Red Sox LA Dodgers Minnesota Twins switching sports agreed to a three team trade Tuesday that's been perhaps delay it has been delayed because of some medical records Mookie Betts has what they call a generational player MVP Golden Gloves traded to the Dodgers are the red Sox making the worst roster decision since they sold Babe Ruth's contract well if you red Sox fans are very happy about it especially because it's a generational player Mookie Betts is a beloved player two years ago he wins the M. B. P. and they won the World Series you're looking at a guy that fans just adore and it's a very cynical move in some ways but it also may very well be a huge business deal for them because number one we know that super star players now at this level after Manny Machado deal after the Bryce Harper deal your it in and now the the Gerrit Cole deal you're looking at three hundred and fifty four hundred million dollars to sign a player and if Mookie Betts didn't want to play with the red Sox will find out over the next several weeks and months if that was the case then of course they had to move them but on the other hand if that's not the case the red Sox are a super power they can sign whoever they want they've got money it's looking like a cynical deal we will see I'm good at and by the way I got as you know your cubs aren't far behind because you've got a guy like Chris Brian who's another cornerstone player and what does that mean for the cubs keep these players and the fans love him yeah thank you very much ESPN's Howard Bryant thanks so much no my pleasure

"The White Mama cried screen. We are trying to track down cody's our we had a mix up here we're GONNA get them and hopefully a couple of minutes you're going to have Kendrick Perkins coming up in a little bit. He's GonNa close out for the final hour with us here I WANNA move onto this before we before we do that. Have you seen the latest. There's some interesting kyrie irving sound and comments that he had you know. He's missed a ton of time with that shoulder injury and I saw a bunch of people. Sort of speculating doing now. He's saying that he's not ruling out shoulder surgery and I I kind of wonder is heading towards a situation where we're just not going to see him for the rest of the year because we we've questioned this thing about Kyrie before about like you know. How much does he invested? In this season he went there to play with this Katie. Obviously Katie's now there's no chance Katie really plays this year. They've already pretty much. Come out and said that you know it is it. Is it beneficial for Kyri for the nets for their future for Kyrenia. Just not this year for you know keep going with Spencer genuinely let let this team go now. The chemistry is sort of come back down a little bit like they start off. I believe nine and three without Kaya read. I think there are three and eight in their last couple so this whole idea that maybe they were better without Kyri. The shine is worn off that just a little bit. Do you think you'd actually would make sense for him to miss the entire year. Just get fully healthy comeback and really go after this thing in twenty twenty twenty twenty one when when they get there Katie back when they have that one two punch they originally signed like would that make more sense than trying to bring Kyrie back this year. Scale so unfair to say like. They're better without Korean K. D. because they have seventy million dollars of cap space tied up into guys who are not playing. Then you add had Charissa burt in there. And that's that's another sixteenth. You have eighty six. I think that's the entire Atlanta Hawks payroll by the way the eighty six million dollars a players who are participating and then when they lose so the question is yes I mean I guess I guess you should sit out. I don't know I don't really know what I I don't really. I have no answer for that. I don't know if it's better for him to sit out and they're still going to be a playoff team because he sucks and I'm not sure sure there are even better with him but what is going to the playoffs without Korean K D do does it help the rest of those guys develop. Does it raise the tree value of Spencer Dinwiddie. Are you looking to move Spencer. Dinwiddie at twelve million dollars another player so I don't I don't really have an answer for that through. I'd be making one of if I told you. Yeah I mean one thing. It's like okay you know. Would Kyri playing with some of these players. Ed Is there any benefit in that going next year when they're back to full health I tend to think there is is I mean I know it'll be a different look but like having some encore chemistry with Spencer Dinwiddie. If you're going to play with them that's going to be a backward that you play a lot like having some chemistry before you know before the for next season I think makes some sense to me now it may never work out. We don't know they may end up having to move dinwiddie because it just isn't like a thing that can that can work on the court but I do think like Kyri coming back and playing with some with these guys. That'll ease Kevin durant because now instead of instead of adding one complete. You know two variables next year. You really only adding one in Kevin Durant so but I don't know we I don't know how healthy carry shoulder is if we're talking about potential surgery. I know everyone was saying he was faking. This thing like I you know. Obviously it seems to be a pretty serious thing. Now if there's any long-term lingering effects that you just sorta shut them down and just say hey. We're going to just do it. We do this year and put all our chips into the future. But I do think if there's if it's not a serious injury and there's really no like future ramifications vacations of him injuring at any further. I do think there is a benefit of playing with some of these guys that he's GonNa have to play within the next two or three years. They WANNA make title run in the Eastern Conference right. That matters you've got the whole preseason next year the whole eighty two game season to figure that out. I don't think that I think if you want to figure route if so maybe maybe I'm putting words in your mouth but maybe this is what you're saying you gotta know if it's GonNa work with Dinwiddie or not and if it is you keep them in. If it's is not any move probably Spencer Dinwiddie right like I could see there'd be value in that but as far as like saying. Yeah they gotTa Start Their Chemistry on court. Chemistry we did. This year is going to help them next year. I'm not sure that that matters with all like next year is going to be to me so much. Different with with their offense will be different Kevin Durant with teacups so much of the load. So it's like I dunno chemistry matters. I think more than anything able help you figure out what are the guys. Maybe these charissa burt. Maybe Charissa burks guy that you ended up trading man. You know what we don't need him at sixteen million. Maybe we need a different type of guy you maybe we go after. I'm not saying Danny Green but I'm saying a Danny Green type of player instead. Maybe more catching shoe guide verses than isolation. I don't know there is a little bit of that that I could see can come into play but as far as these guys will long long years six months before the playoffs. Start before you make that run for Eastern Conference Championship so well I do think I do. The clippers are sort of an interesting test case. You're though right. Can you build chemistry like with some of your star players like missing a bunch of games during the regular season like. Are they going to be fine for the playoffs. I think a lot of things. Yes but we don't know yet right so of Kyri can go through this stretch of this regular season. Have some cameras. Those guys is to to me. That's only going to help. When Katie comes your hundred percent right? It's going to. It's going to look different. Kyrie is going to be the center of that. Oh sorry. Katie is going to be the center of that offense. Although we don't know they're probably GONNA EAT SIM Zim back into that thing. It's not like you imagine that next year he's going to be awesome. Loaded management stuff as well. He's not gonNA be probably playing back to backs they're gonNA take super careful with him but I do think the the clippers are almost. It's an interesting test case. How do in one season when you're putting an basically an entirely new team together? How many regular season games do they need to have the chemistry it takes to go Out and be really productive and potentially win a title right because I think I think there are still some doubts about whether the clippers can do that but I think next year. There's going to be about doubts about whether the nets with two new players of Kyrie doesn't play this entire season can do that and be a team that could win the eastern conference like naming naming example Jimmy precedence on this. You get to good players and there isn't any there isn't there really isn't I don't I don't I don't think.

"A stalwart a real fixture in Charlotte community north peak surgeon here has operate on so many people, but today emphasizing his thirty years as the orthopedic surgeon for the Charlotte Hornets and Hornets now are celebrating their thirty th year in the NBA Glenn with that brief parenthesis of the Charlotte bobcats being a part of it too. You have really had some wonderful experiences. I would just love to know first of all who is the person you've operated on that. You remember the most it was my first surgery on the Charlotte Hornets, and it was Larry Johnson. Larry Johnson he had torn meniscus cartilage in his knees. And it's a pretty simple operation that literally takes about ten minutes to do. And I'll never forget when I walk. In. He was standing up, and he was frightened. And he grabbed me, and he hugged me and he goes duck duck. Don't let him do it. Don't let him do it. I said, Larry, what are you talking about that IV doc make him put me to sleep? I before I put the IV. I said Larry you're free to needles. All doc. I sit Larry you go against some of the biggest guys in the league and your frayed. Put doc make him put me to sleep was everything we could do to get Larry to do the IV. So we went and perform the surgery everything very well went very well. I walked out of the operating room and the CEO the hospital came to me and said, Dr Perry. There's a press conference for you. And when I walked into the room adjacent to the operating room. There were reporters there were TV cameras. There was everything and I walked up there. And I looked at him the first thing I said was I wasn't the least bit nervous to do the surgery. But man, I sure am nervous now, and that kind of broke the ice and everything cracked up and Larry went on to be one of my friends, and I'm still close with him. Now, really stay in touch with the communicate with him do. Wow. That is a fascinating story. The first injury of ever was in the first hour of the first practice of the first year that would be Octobber I nineteen eighty eight. And there was a backward. Fall on an outstretched hand that fractured the navicular of none other than Dell. Curry really first injury of the Charlotte Hornets in the first practice within the first thirty minutes. Correct. Wow. Correct. Were you there at the practice? What is not at the practice, but they sent him in. We got an x Ray. And he started for about six to eight weeks in a thumb spike a cast and Dell and I have gone on to become very close in as you know. He does the color for the for TV. And I I just think the world of him. And I know one of your fondest memories is remembering a little kid that would get on the court and from his lowest possible posture heave basketball's up toward the basket. And it was Steph curry del son has now become maybe the greatest shooter in the history of the NBA. Wow. Would agree with that? And he's my favorite. I used to tease that I used to have to kick he and his brother out of the training room. I'd be Yellen to my trainer carry coffer. Terry, Terry, get the curry boys. They were throwing were throwing basketballs into waste cans while I'm trying to see Alonzo Mourning and I ice to kick 'em out fast forward a number of years when he was ready to enter the NBA delbra. Him down. And we kind of checked over his ankle. He wanted to make sure no misinformation got out and at that point his ankle was really doing pretty well. So we went to the combine David and Steph as he is, and I I just I just think the world him came into the combine gave me a big hug, and while I was presenting his case to my colleagues of twenty years. I got a little emotional. I mean, I watched this little kid grow up. He was friends with my son Brad, and they used to play basketball camps together, and they played golf against each other and this little skinny Steph curry, and I remember thinking at the time David at least if he gets that rookie contract. He'll be okay. Because I don't know how good he is going to be in this league. Oh, wow. You were among many others who just wondered from the day one could his body hold up against these bigger stronger quicker athletes, and we realized quickly he's every bit as quick and strong as they are interestingly the last game that they played I was trying to get there early. And it just seemed like God was holding me up and holding me up. I kept getting one problem after another. I got to the game. And that was a little forlorn thinking that I had missed my chance to say Hello to step when I was walking down the hallway and out of a Roo pop. Stephanie bumps and we got the talk for five or ten minutes, and David I can tell you Steph curry today is exactly the same as he was. And I can't tell you what a wonderful family, and we ought to give a shout out to Sonya. Curry is mom because everybody knows if you've got a great mom, you're going to be a great person and Dell is wonderful as well. But Sonia's just exceptional Sonya is I think it made my opinion. It's she's about three things faith, family and. Education. I remember one time going to her during the bobcats and saying after his freshman year. Remember when Steph had that breakout in the NCAA tournament first game thirty two against Michigan. And then it went through even greater ex spectacular success. And I walked up there as a joke, and I looked at it. This is after his freshman year because I knew how she felt about education. I looked at her less at Sonya, I think Steph ought to quit school and go pro and she flashed a look up. And I said Sonya, I'm just kidding. And she said, you better be kidding. Dr Perry, she's wonderful too. Well, you know, the whole family structure allows those kids to succeed and all three of their children are just exceptional in their own way. Really are doctor Glenn Perry is my guest today for thirty years the orthopedic surgeon for the Charlotte Hornets Glen, give me another memory that just comes into your mind. When you think about these thirty years with the Hornets as the team physician, well, it was December twenty third nineteen Eighty-eight. We were playing the first time against the Chicago Bulls and Michael Jordan and at the end of the game Kurt Rambus got put back and we won the game. And we beat the bulls. And I'll never forget Steve Martin on the We we just couldn't believe it. And I remember him saying merry Christmas Charlotte and from that time on they sold out literally. For nine years. And I think it was really that game against Chicago that that spurned it. And I remember Carl Scheer telling me before all that that he was concerned that the older Riina was too large and had too many seats, and we wouldn't sell them out. What was the twenty one thousand twenty three thousand three hundred twenty four thousand and I said car, what are you talking about? He said Glen most most arenas have about sixteen seventeen thousand word that's going to look empty. Well after that happened. He wanted more seat majesty. And that was one of my great memories. Yeah. And and talk just for a second about the buzz that was in the hive during that time period every game a sell out. It was just magnificent. Every game was was sold out. Every game people were asking me for tickets people were coming to me. And I had I didn't have any influence with with business saying how can I get on the list? How can I get these the seats, and and it was quite a phenomenon for Charlotte? I remember being asked to be the team chaplain for about five of those years, and we would meet and have dinner together and hawk and then he'd walk into the arena and just start feeling it fill up and this excitement just came from almost a spiritual quality of you will David other teams light coming to Charlotte because they knew the crowds were into it. And kinda college atmosphere it did. And and they enjoyed all the noise and everything and it was funny. I don't think I realized how special that was and with this being the thirtieth year and Alonzo coming back and Muggsy and guys that I've been very close to and we talked at these reunions and all of us have looked at each other and said, we realise now how special that moment was and that because we've never had anything close to that. Doctor Glenn Perry orthopedic surgeon here in Charlotte locally for many many years, but also the team physician for the Hornets for thirty years. You mentioned Muggsy Bogues talk about him aphoristic Lee. He he's just a fee nom. He really is a phenomenal athlete and phenomenal person. And I remain very very close all along and you ever have to operate on him. I did I did. In fact, I told him what I looked at his knee after surgery. I said Mugsy I need to say this to you because I'm your physician, and if I didn't say this to you, it wouldn't be technically, correct? But really you ought to consider retirement. And he looked at me and said, you're crazy, doc, I'm not retired any kept right on playing bone on bone. I remember that day. He did on the in in the latter part of the joint. I remember that very well yet he played through it and can. I have remained close. And if you ever hear the stories, you know, that that ESPN the air the the boys from Baltimore, I tell you it gives me chills every time. I see that. What what what an inspirational type person he's been and he was inspirational to his teammates talk about that. Well, there were times when the coach would make a call on a on a play and Muggsy would be walking out with him. And he looked at me. He goes that plays not gonna work zone. Here's what you do L J. You do this and do that. And they would run to play and it would be successful. So the coach really couldn't say anything he was that much of a court general he knew exactly what they could coach on the floor all the time. I remember going to one of the first games and the dean dome when it opened up back in the eighties in North Carolina. Played Wake Forest and coach myth was still coaching at the time. And I spent the night and went into the office the next day just to say Hello to him and say, hey, I'm watching game films. Come on. And watch this. So we went in he was doing the game films from the night before for the Wake Forest game that I've been able to see and as I sat there and watched this. I'll never forget coach Smith going that Muggsy Bogues. He said he is the biggest pest I've ever had to coach against he said, I just tell my guys don't turn your back on him. If you're dribbling the ball, or he's gonna steal it from you, you better not do that. And he went on and on about what a great player. He wasn't. He said man, I sure missed on him five three. I didn't think he could play in this league. And he's wrong on that one. It was interesting. I was the team physician for Davidson college early in my career, and they had a real good player who later played in Australia named Derek Rucker who was Reggie Rucker son, and Derek was a guard. And he was the player of the year. He couldn't bring the ball up against Mugsy because Muggsy would steal it every single time. They had if somebody else bring the ball up just a phenomenal athlete. Great guide and a person of great esteem. Just a wonderful person to doctor Glenn Perry is my guest today having a blast. Reminiscing about his thirty years as the orthopedist for the Charlotte Hornets, Glenn when we come back. Let's just continue the story. Absolutely. Fascinating. David. You can even tell some stories about me if you want to that's going to be a bit dangerous. Alright Winfrey's my guest. I'm David Chadwick will be right back ride home with a hall of Famer. All right to have a twenty.
